Hey, my name is David and I'm currently a student at Georgia Tech and am pursuing a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering (a Ramblin' Gamblin' Hell of an Engineer (in training!)). So basically, you'll be seeing tons of space and aviation related posts on my blog.

Things you'll be seeing on here: the Miami Heat, the Office, Parks and Recreation, Top Gear, Breaking Bad, Emma Watson, the Killers, Coldplay, Disney, Portal, The Walking Dead and a bunch of other random things.

Feel free to ask me questions about anything, but I may or may not answer depending my mood.

If my kids never see any Pixar movies, I will have failed as a father. 

Except Cars 2, they can not see that one.

“We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.” 
Maria Mitchell is known as the first professional female astronomer in the United States. On October 1, 1847, she peered through her family’s telescope and “swept around for comets,” as she did every night it was clear. But that night she became the first woman in the U.S. to discover one. She later became the first Astronomy professor at Vassar College, where she would often ask her students, “Did you learn that in a book or observe it yourself?”

Went to a flight competition this weekend, aka the reason why I only slept for 6 hours this weekend. 
Both of the bottom planes crashed on the first day. Bottom left (Regular Class) was rebuilt within a few hours and attempted to fly but the landing gear wasn’t aligned and it just ran off the runway. Flew twice the next day, but second flight was disqualified because the pilot landed before he was supposed to.
Bottom right (Advanced Class) also crashed the first day. Had its center section rebuilt overnight, but didn’t fly at all the next day.
Overall, kind of a bummer, but gained a lot of experience just by being there.
Can’t wait til next year when we go to Lakeland, FL!

On a scale of 1-10, how dead do I look?
Because this is what 36 hours of no sleep does to a person. And I still have to keep going. I’ll probably post more on this after I recover…

On my 35th hour without sleep. Been repairing and building airplanes. I have a circuits lab final tomorrow that I haven’t studied for and a stupid technical communications group project to work on tonight because my teammates are idiots (surprise surprise).

So we’ll see how long I’ll be able to last without sleep. I’m pretty much at a record right now.
